My Students

The students of my classroom are English language learners and represent the culturally diverse communities in the east Boston area. For many of my middle school students this is their first experience playing musical instruments and learning how to engage with music from all over the world.

Help me support and further student engagement in our growing music program!

My students are hardworking and motivated through hands-on-learning experiences. Having accessibility to these percussion instruments will help create memorable musical moments.

My Project

All of my students look forward to learning how to play the drum set and other various percussion instruments. Our classroom can only allow for two students to practice along on drum set because the limited amount of instruments we have in our music class.

In our class an addition of new frame drums, new drum sticks, will provide a quality music instruction to all my students.

The shortage of percussion equipment limits the amount of practice time my students are able to get in our daily instruction. For many of my students this is this first experience in music class ever! Help me provide lasting musical experience for these students.
